This FEMALE tail is really really long, i would have mistaken it for a male

Here is the pic, sorry about bad quality pic but the point is you could see her tail. The cup label as female, but i was skeptical, I held the cup up and look under its stomach, and behold! It is indeed a female. rounded stomach with the white dot ovipositor between the ventral fins.

Im 100% sure there round white dot right between the ventral fins, or may be im a noob bc i never seen a female with this long tail.... or maybe both petsmart and I were wrong, which could be the case

Looks like a male to me, but hey, could be wrong! If it is a female, that is pretty cool!

That's what i thought at first but males don't have ovipositors. Obviously it is not a young betta so the white dot was very clear

I have one female that I am 100% sure is a female (bred her once, but the father ate the eggs) and she has very long fins. She had me wondering for a long time. It happens, but with this one, the anal fin is really long.. have you tried getting him/her to flair for you? Stick a mirror up there and she what s/he does.

If she were a male, she would be a young veiltail. Sometimes, young males fake ovipositors.

I found this sorority tank on youtube and look at one of the female (at 0:14), has similar shape and fin size. Now i am 85% sure that it is a female
